More “Wartime Measures” in China to Fight Coronavirus

China once again declares wartime measures to fight the coronavirus. China Australia relations take a turn for the worse. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sanctions a Chinese official involved in the persecution of Falun Gong, or Falun Dafa, the qigong practice the Chinese Communist Party has been persecuting since former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin attacked the practice in 1999. Lawmakers call out China for forced organ harvesting and organ trafficking from Falun Gong practitioners and Uyghur Muslims. The International Criminal Court refuses to investigate China. And Apple Daily's Jimmy Lai is seen in chains under Hong Kong's draconian national security law. That and more on this week's China news headlines.
